Rid­ers bring home swag of sil­ver­ware from ti­tles

Pilbara News - - Front Page - Tom Zaun­mayr

Kar­ratha’s best BMX tal­ent has come home from the State cham­pi­onships with a swag of sil­ver­ware to add to its bal­loon­ing tro­phy cab­i­net.

Twenty-seven rid­ers made the trip to a wet and windy meet in Perth, but the con­di­tions did not phase our lo­cal rid­ers who took home a com­bined 15 tro­phies and awards for mak­ing the fi­nals.

So­phie Tay­lor, 11, came home

with two pieces of sil­ver­ware, first in the 12-and-un­der girls’ cruiser and sec­ond in the 11-year-old girls’ 20-inch class.

So­phie said she would now hit the par­ents up for a new tro­phy cab­i­net.

“This was the best State ti­tles out of the two I’ve done,” she said.

“It’s the first time I’ve got State cham­pion and I did one of the best rides I’ve ever done on my 20inch.

“I felt re­ally good, re­ally ex­cited and proud to be sup­port­ing my club.”

Ash­lyn Keremele­vich, 10, only took up rid­ing this year and man­aged to score a sec­ond place in her 10-year-old girls’ class.

Ash­lyn said she was aim­ing for first, but was happy with the out­come given how long she had been in the game.

“It was re­ally good be­cause now I am used to rid­ing with all the girls,” she said.

“I like the jump­ing and all of that.”

Jack­son Tatham, Alan Kurilowski, Ry­ley Hinch­cliffe, Cal­lum Kirk­wood and Rod­ney Gethin all scored podium fin­ishes in their classes.

Greg Kiehne, Blake White, Joshua Swiatek, Ab­bie Kiehne and Luke White made the State fi­nals races.
